The autumn in Saigon is not like that in the capital Hanoi where hoa sua (milk flowers) spread their fragrance and cool breeze blow.

Instead, Saigon in autumn comes in the form of rows of loc vung (Barringtonia acutangula) trees turning yellows.

Under the sun, leaves slowly fall on the streets. Saigonese then enjoy a cup of morning filter coffee which drizzles away to give way to a clear blue sky.

The following are some photos which depict the “autumn” in Saigon that is said to be hard-to-find moments in town. SGT
